The stunning kitchen/breakfast room has oak fronted kitchen units with both granite and wooden worktops, a cream Aga with both gas fired and electric modules, tiled flooring, downlighters and French doors to the terrace. At the end of the hall is a cloakroom and a utility room and a door leading down to the basement, which has been converted to provide a playroom/study.

wardrobes and beautifully appointed en suite shower room.

To the front of the property is an area of lawn bordered by hedging and shrubs. From the drive a flagstone path leads up to the front porch. On both sides of the house are gated paths leading around to a large and attractive terrace and well at the rear. On the north side of the house are 2 garden sheds. Steps lead up from the terrace to landscaped gardens on various levels, mostly of which are laid to lawn with beautifully stocked borders and a greenhouse.
